Talking Points Memo (TPM) reported this afternoon:
A federal judge in Ohio on Friday restored early voting rights in the three days before the election, ruling in favor of the Obama campaign.
U.S. District Judge Peter C. Economus ruled that "restoring in-person early voting to all Ohio voters through the Monday before Election Day does not deprive UOCAVA [Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act] voters from early voting."
This is the third piece of good news on the voting rights front we've heard in recent days. In Texas and Florida, voter suppression attempts also were blocked.
